After a couple of very cold, windy, rainy days in Patagonia, we could finally enjoy the sun on January 1st, 2019.

Why do you need a travel agent? Let me tell you my favorite story.

Why do you need a travel agent? Let me tell you my favorite story.

When sometimes people as me why should they use a travel agent in the digital age of book it and do it yourself online sites I have a favorite response. But before I give the example I want to be objective and say that using a travel agent is not for everyone and may not be necessary for some travel arrangements.

Mother’s day in South America

Mother’s day in South America

This Sunday is Mother’s day in the US so I am sure all of you saw a lot of “sales” and promotions are happening around specially in “things” and gifts for Moms. Since my mom lives in Argentina, and Mother’s day there is the 3rd Sunday of October it is pretty strange for me to celebrate it here, without her and then when she celebrates in October there is no “mother’s day” in the USA. So, I decided to do…
